Wendy Brown is teaching the Lucerne Master Class 2018 "Where Liberal Democracy Once Was: Liberal Authoritarianism in the Twenty-First Century" at the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences from 28 May - 1 June 2018.  

In her public talk, Wendy Brown will discuss questions such as the following: How might we grasp the novel fusion of libertarian freedom, white nationalism and authoritarianism appearing in right wing political formations across the EuroAtlantic today? What is the contribution of four decades of neoliberalism to building plutocratic political regimes rooted in neofascist popular sentiment, the very nightmare that the original neoliberal intellectuals aimed to prevent? What about contributions beyond those of neoliberal reason and policy?
